Storyline

Rick is a screenwriter living in Los Angeles, California. While he's successful in his career, his life feels empty. Haunted by the death of one brother and the dire circumstances of the other, he finds temporary solace in the Hollywood excess that defines his existence. Women provide a distraction to the daily pain he must endure, and every encounter that comes his way brings him closer to finding his place in the world. The film is divided into eight chapters (each named after a tarot card, except for the final chapter Freedom), plus a prologue, each loosely based around the central character's relationship with somebody in his life..

Quotes

Fr. Zeitlinger: Seems you're alone. You're not. Even now, He's taking your hand and guiding you by a way you cannot see. If you're unhappy, you shouldn't take it as a mark of God's disfavor. Just the contrary. Might be the very sign He loves you. He shows His love not by helping you avoid suffering, by sending you suffering. By keeping you there. To suffer binds you to something higher than yourself, higher than your own will. Takes you from the world, to find what lies beyond it. We are not only to endure ...

Enjoy the cinematography from Emmanuel Lubezki
9 January 2016 | by nirupam-astroSee all my reviews

The movie is filled with beautiful imagery like any other Terrence Malick film. Malick knows that a visual experience can transmit the emotions, thoughts and ideas of thousand words, and one has to understand that to appreciate his movies. The narrative also holds its ground. It takes you through the existential crisis Christian Bale's character Rick faces. I would suggest you to watch "Tree of Life" & "To the Wonder" first as the three movies form an implicit trilogy and kind of an autobiography. Tree of Life is the magnum opus of Malick and I can't help comparing his any other movie with it. That's why the 6 rating. P.S. The movie is easy on the eye, yet somewhat confusing. A bit like my girlfriend.
